The Fokker E.V was a German parasol-monoplane fighter designed by Reinhold Platz and built by Fokker-Flugzeugwerke. It entered service with the Luftstreitkräfte in the last months of World War I.
After several fatal accidents due to wing failures, the aircraft was modified and redesignated Fokker D.VIII. Dubbed the Flying Razor by Allied pilots, tbe D.VIII had the distinction of scoring the last aerial victory of the war.
This replica was built using original plans and was fitted with a 220hp Continental W-670 engine. For many years, it was part of the Ryder's Replica Fighter museum in Alabama. During 2000 it came over to Europe and has been part of the Antwerp Stampe museum.
During August 2002 the aircraft was severely damaged in a landing-accident at the Schaffen Old-timer Fly in.
The fuselage was cracked and the wing was also damaged quite badly.
R.A.R helped the Stampe museum to dismantle the aircraft and transport it back to Antwerpen.
